    Print content chopped!!!

    Hello..

    see here:

    http://letterstojune.org.uk/?page=Letters

    The content, when printed is chopped and not flowing onto a second or third page. Viewing the print preview will show you what I mean...

    Any ideas how this can be fixed, in a print stylesheet for example.

    George.

    i believe its down to you having

    overflow:hidden;

    in div.content_wrapper

    also any reason you're using display:inline;? Divs are block by default, should be no real reason to change this. Spans > inline

    you can also specify page breaks, which may be useful.

    Okay, will look into the overflow:hidden setting..

    I use inline for IE6 margin purposes.

    How would you specify a page break... been developing for 3 years now, but not for a website purely used to store print content over one page.

    You didn't remove it, though.

    Cancel that on the Letters to June, just created a print.css and set the content area to width 100% and overflow: visible...

    Thanks to those who have helped so far :d
